That Zara dress with its own Instagram has landed in Australia.

In case you missed it, this year a Zara dress became so ubiquitous on the streets of London, it earned its own Instagram account.

The dress in question is a $49.95 polka-dot style with a high neck and long sleeves that’s loosely cinched at the waist. British designer and stylist Faye Oakenfull started the account, hilariously titled Hot4TheSpot, to allow eagle-eyed followers to submit photos of the piece seen in public. Behold:

Created as 'a safe space for *The Dress*, it features hundreds of rogue snaps of ladies out-and-about in the frock, changeroom selfies, kids trying it on for size, and a submission from one Russian woman who actually got married in it back in May.

So popular is the Instagram, it started a movement, 'Wear the dress day', which took place this week in the UK.

And finally, The Dress has landed in Zara stores in Australia. It's still available online at the time of publishing, and we can confirm recent sightings in Sydney's CBD – so if you want one, move fast.
